Parks and Recreation creator slams NRA for using an Amy Poehler GIF

Parks and Recreation creator slams NRA for using an Amy Poehler GIF

Once again, America finds itself in the middle of a furious debate over gun control following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead.

The tweet featured actress Amy Poehler, the Burlington native, who played peace-and-waffle-loving Leslie Knope on the television show "Parks and Recreation".

He tweeted: 'Hi, please take this down.

The tweet included a photo of "Parks and Recreation" character Leslie Knope. Which led afterward to a tweet from the NRA that several members of the cult classic NBC series "Parks and Recreation" took particular offense to.

Nick Offerman played the very conservative Ron Swanson, a more likely character to have anything to do with the NRA.

The NRA took to Twitter in support of Loesch.

Nick Offerman also told the NRA to "eat s--" and Amy Poehler said "f-- off".

Plaza reunited with Poehler and fellow co-stars Rashida Jones and Kathryn Hahn to celebrate the show's Galentine's Day on Instagram on February 13. Leave Leslie Knope out of it.

The actor said that Knope ― a progressive politician who admires Hillary Clinton and once called President Donald Trump "a giant farting T. rex" ― represents "the opposite of [the NRA's] pro-slaughter agenda".

His message has around 333,000 likes while the NRA's has racked up close to 7,000. Following up, fellow survivor Emma Gonzalez directly addressed Loesch on the NRA's stance on banning the purchase of semi-automatic and fully automatic weapons, making it a tough night overall for the organization.

The NRA didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.
